My sweetheart has agreed to try using a walker. The cane doesn't seem to be enough - although we forget to bring it along quite a bit, so perhaps it could help more than we let it. He's so unsteady for the first steps after he stands; could a walker help him with that? Should I try to find one I can weight down in front to keep him from going over backwards? I would be grateful for any advice or insight. He's not ready for a wheelchair - that's a question for a later day.
